Grandfather Clock

I have a grandfather clock and a cuckoo clock on my to-do list. A sundial too. I’m retro that way.

Really sad to see clocks and watches disappear due to mobile phones.

I’m posting Joan’s clock as inspiration for myself. I tend to start smaller images than this and then find it difficult to get all the trimmings in. I do have a good clock face already. So I could build the clock around it. Not for the cuckoo clock maybe. That would be smaller. Will see whenever I get them done.

AMERICAN VIDEO RECORDER

Now it looks more like MY VCR–endlessly flashing 12:00, 12:00, 12:00….
No matter how many times my electricity goes out or the kids pull the
plug, I have to find the instruction book to set the time (after several
days of the obnoxious flash). Even then, it STILL aint easy!

What you need is one of these simple little remote controllers.
Now…to reset your time is real easy !
All you do is :
Switch on the TV to the video channel.
Press the bottom RH corner button to get the program display on screen.
Select the Language you want to use ( probably ENGLISH )
Use the UP arrow buttons on the remote to go to the very top line and then set the year, month, date and time in hours and minutes using the 24 hour time format.
When all is correct press the bottom RH corner button again to activate the time clock. You are now in business until the next time someone pulls the plug.
Now if you want to know how to use the LCD CHANNEL PROGRAM DISPLAY on the Remote – I’ll just have to go away and check the Manual, I shouldn’t be long……

Time Out
NO CARRIER
